Kentucky blogger Cyberhillbilly picked up on an effort to stop subsidizing purchases of soft drinks with food stamp money:
“Maybe it’s time Kentucky looked at banning the soda from being purchased via food stamps. The American Dental Association has already proposed a ban nationwide. Apparently such an effort would require a federal waiver, but we could at least seek such a course.”
One might think Gov. Steve Beshear and friends could take a break from counting the billions of dollars in new federal money they have coming in to get this done quickly.
